Haha, I worked it out a while ago anyway. It was a stupid problem;  
when I rebuilt apache, I forgot to change my modules directory over  
to being owned by the apache user. Everything is working perfectly  
now, but I have a new question anyway!

Is it better to send documents chunked by calling req.send_http_header 
() and then using req.write unbuffered, or to send it all together by  
not using req.send_http_header() and with buffered req.write?
